Last I updated, I was waiting for my period to start so I could begin my injections for our first round of IVF. Well it’s been over a week and a half since I started my needles and I can say that I’m getting very close to having my egg retrieval. I know this not only because of what the doctors are telling me (obviously) but because of how I can feel my ovaries with every step I take. Thanks to my PCOS and the amount of follicles I have developing, my ovaries are literally the size of oranges.
So some people I have talked to since opening up about what we are going through don’t fully understand what my body will be going through with IVF. They know its the ‘test tube baby’ but they are not completely sure how we get to that stage. So here is a quick ‘Amber’ version of what I am currently going through and what is to come in the next week.
